Women v Men
Without everyone going no women's games are boring, could we have a debate about the pro's and con's about the differences in the game.
Personally I find a good women's game has more finer points of the game.
Talking high level here not under 10s of social grades, or Div 18 :) I think women's game offer more in the tatical side of the game.
My opinions here feel free to discuss but I feel that women's teams on the whole play defence and offence. Men's games tend to be shoot outs. Physicality and high scoring basketball of the nbl can be attractive but to a certain extent it is simply an 'entertainment' game I realise we don't have tv timeouts but we are controlled by TV.
I can be entertained by a close Lightning game but bored by a NBL game.
Women attempt to score more than the opposition and attempt to keep their opponents from scoring whereas lots (and I know the sixers are renown for their defence this is a generalisation) men attempt simply put more points on the board!
For the basketball purists what do you prefer?
